It took me the weekend, a minimum of 6 re-installs and tracking down every post ever written on the subject. My brain was mush and I was still not willing to give up even though I began to believe that I could not solve it… and another evening was coming to its end and still no success. So one more time, just one – and lo and behold, finally!
Installing WordPress MultiUser environment was a bit wobbly as it was my first run at it. Integrating BuddyPress after that was a breeze. But getting bbPress to work integrated with the WordPress MU / BuddyPress installment was an horrible, horrible, horrible experience.
In the end it was so straightforward, so you wonder what was all that problem about?! I’ll have to write these days a step by step because I never again want to go through those 200 missed attempts I’ve just gone through! Keep an eye open for it to appear on the mStudiosTALK site.
That feeling of achievement was worthwhile, that first moment when creating a fresh group in my buddypress installment allowed me to create a forum and that forum showed up correctly in the bbpress forum… and then the post added truly echoed back to the group… woot.
Time for sleep, hopefully with dreams no longer dredged with cookies and config files.
(if you understood less than half, don’t worry, it’s just coding stuff :-)
